Java code does not normally produce .exe file
Java compiles into class file which is interpreted by Java Virtual Machine on runtime.
If you have exe file good chnace it was not java in the first place

I have an executable version. However, i need the source code.
Are there any tool to get the source code from the .exe?

A hex editor could get some information; more than you have now.

I am working on Java for about 8 years.
You cant convert exe back to anything useful. (unless you are a scientist :))

If you want some specific details (like strings in it), hex editor can possibly help.
